Finally, we welcomed 41 participants from 17 countries (among them 13 G20-States), from FAO, OECD and EU-Commission to our initial MACS-G20 workshop related to food loss & waste reduction at Angleterre Hotel in Berlin. Embedded into inspiring keynote presentations in plenary setting we experienced fruitful subgroup discussions in order to work out information related to success stories, considerable barriers, upcoming challenges as well as transferability to other countries.
This comprehensive stocktaking will provide the basis for further systematic steps within the MACS-G20 initiative. Beside further cooperation within G20 member states we also included considerations about responsibility of G20 for food loss & waste reduction in third countries and options for respective support and interaction.
The final protocol was sent out to participants in October 2017 and can be found here, too.
